If your lucky and can find the mip CVD's for a mini. They are longer than the Pro3's. I use them in the front and havn't broke an out drive or poped the cvd out since. Orignally I had some longer cvds custom made untill I found the MIPs.

Interesting

The CVD bones for RS4 kits will fit the CVD axles for RS4 kits (and there is crossover between many of the other brands as well - for example to make Super Nitro CVDs you can use B2/B3 CVD bones and Nitro RS4 CVD axles), however we've never had too much of a problem with the Pro 3 bones coming out of the diff outdrives.

And for the record the bulkhead dremeling wasn't my idea (I wish I could take the credit for it), one of the Japanese racers did it first. Also - don't dremel it too much...if you are in a "no one-way" race like the Reedy TC race you will get belt slippage. However, the Losi guys used the belt as a slipper clutch at last year's race, but it tears up the belt - this method isn't recommended for anyone who doesn't want to replace their belts every several runs.

The spacers under the front bulkhead plate idea (a picture from the HPI Japan site is posted a couple of pages back) is only for the HB graphite plate chassis - it does not have holes large enough for the small flanges that surround 3 of the bulkhead plate screw holes. I'm pretty sure the primary reason for the spacer is not to loosen the belt.

Tower Hobbies has probably as good of a selection as anyone for genuine HPI parts. They don't carry much of a selection of PRO 3 parts made by other manufacturers.

hope this helps
Well this option seems to tighten the belt.
I tried the WD40 trick but no luck still tight.

I now have put 3 pieces of paper under the FRONT 3 screws (not the one of the steering posts) of the front bulkhead and the chassis. this tilts the nose a little and moves everything a little to the back (under a small angle).
This seems to loosen the front belt a little to where it is exceptable.


Greatz,
